Midwest Open Wrapup
A special congratulations to all our competitors on championship Monday. Weather was beautiful and atmosphere was awesome. On behalf of Club-net corporation we would like to salute our champions. Zach Mueck champion, Mihir Kumar finalist, Aaron Chafee 3rd place and Michael Fredericka 4th place. Michael and Elliott Yee were our sportmanship award winners this year. Both guys were excellent examples of our tournament motto, "have fun competing and testing our skills under pressure". These guys both won and lost close matches and handled themselves like professionals. Our Doubles champions were Ian Tesmond and Brantner Jones. They put on an excellent display of doubles throughout the event and Brantner is a repeat doubles champion at our event. We want to thank everyone again for coming and competing this year, and good luck to the boys going on to Kalamazoo this weekend. Mark Bey
